I wanted to give my husband something fun to do on his birthday and I know he loves to go fast on boats. We didn't take our boat with us that weekend so this was a perfect gift. The captain was really fun and energetic, and took to the time to answer our questions after the ride. Be prepared to... More

Such a blast, you will not be disappointed!! Great time! I can't say enough good things about it. Wear your swimsuit! Or clothes you don't mind getting wet in. Be prepared to get more than just splashed a little. So fun!

My wife and I took this tour as part of our 30th Anniversary trip to the Dells. OMG!! It was so much fun. Our driver, Jimbo, did a great job with the tour and the thrills, and getting the passengers completely soaked!! I would recommend this for any age, check for coupons in the local coupon books. Well worth the... More

You definitely get your money's worth with this adventure! Not only do you get to see some beautiful scenery, and get a little history from your captain, but you get to do it in between bursts of serious speed, power turns, great music, and power stops! Awesome time. Captain Kenny really made this day memorable. He was knowledgeable about the... More

What could be more exciting than a boat tour on the Dell with some power turns, a drenching and a great narrative? You get all that along with some spectacular views, a history of the area and with captain Kenny-some humor to boot. Recommended for all ages that enjoy adventure and don't mind a good soaking!

This was the 4th year in a row that we have done this trip as an end to our weekend at the Dells. It is still great fun to learn about the area and get wet in the process, continuing the waterpark theme. It is evident the girls are getting older as they commented this year's Capt Jimbo was pretty... More

Had a great time on the jet boats. Maverick and Kenny were great!! Sat in the front row and it wasn't too bad for getting wet. If you lean up towards the window you can stay somewhat dry but still wet. Will do it again!!

My teenage kids said this was their favorite thing to do on vacation! Be prepared, you will get wet. It was a very informative tour. The music was good as well. This is a great time!
